It’s been over three years since we caught up with legendary model-maker, illustrator and ex-Thatcher parody-er Wilfrid Wood, but he’s been very busy fashioning the very finest satirical sculpture known to man. What with all the Olympic action last year he was commissioned again and again to render leaping anthropomorphic athletes for magazine editorials as well as a blue, balloon-faced Tom Daley posed in his skimpy diving pants. He’s also done a couple of exceptional homages (perhaps piss-takes) of rock and roll legends Paul McCartney and David Bowie as well as a bare-armed Bieber that we can’t stop laughing at. Keep ’em coming Wilfrid – nobody does it quite like you.
